Your post looks like you raided my bookshelves! I have vowed to read Dr. Z. and Lonesome Dove this year, and keep hoping to find the inspiration to read War & Peace. I disliked the Eight and was ambivalent about the Jane Austen one. Hope you enjoy both more than I did.

@Rose City, I did not like Dr. Z (review to come) so good luck. Dove is fantastic though! I love the movie of the Jane Austen Book Club so I'm hoping I'll like the book somewhat but I know it's lightweight. Sadly, after Dr. Z, I'm not really sure if War & Peace will be as high on my TBR list as it was before. Bummer.

@Rose City - oops - that was me up there but logged in as my BF! He's reading no Russian authors this year. :)

Looking forward to your review on Lonesome Dove. I've always wanted to read that.
